SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A drug operation carried out by the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit Thursday in Shreveport's MLK neighborhood has netted 19 felony arrests. 

Police say members of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office Special Response Team executed a search warrant in the 3000 block of Gordonia in response to complaints in the area involving the sale of crack cocaine.  

After the warrant was executed, an operation was conducted by the Caddo–Shreveport Narcotics Unit and Shreveport Police Vice Unit.

As a result of the search warrant and the operation that followed, a total of 19 suspects were arrested for felony cocaine charges. According to Caddo Sheriff's Lieutenant Carl Townley, the last suspect arrested was a woman who actually walked up while agents were ending the operation and boldly demanded to buy crack cocaine. According to a release from the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office, Lieutenant Townley said it surprised the agents due to the fact they were wearing tactical uniforms clearly marked with either SHERIFF or POLICE. The suspect was consequently arrested.

During the arrests, agents seized approximately 18.2 grams of crack cocaine, a small amount of marijuana and a small amount of ecstasy. The suspects were booked in the Caddo Correctional Center and Shreveport City Jail.
